This location will have a night beach!

Heading the beach in the morning has now become a thing of past!

With temperature currently reaching over 40 degrees in Dubai, its hard to even have the thought of going anywhere outside before sunset.

Night swimming is banned on public beaches in Dubai due to safety concerns.

However, Dubai has recently opened a night beach at Umm Suqeim, which is equipped to be completely safe for people to enjoy swimming in the dark!

The good news is, another night beach will open at Al Mumzar Beach!

Each has a rescue station that has a qualified crew, ambulance and communication equipment. 

Smart power poles were installed by the beach which are powered by wind and solar energy emitting lights to illuminate the sea.

"The smart poles are equipped with digital screens to display marine warnings in case of sea disturbance.

The texts of the marine warnings and the colours of the flags usually flying on the beaches to warn the swimmers will be scrolled on the screens.

When the red light shines, it indicates the danger of swimming and its impossibility", said Eng. Alia Al Harmoudi, Director of Environment Department at Dubai Municipality.
